Car Choice: A fjord Focus? Or vice Verso?
Richard Coode and his wife have a Toyota Yaris Verso automatic as their sole car. After just over five years, it has done 67,000 miles and proved very reliable. They would have kept the Yaris for much longer, but twice a year they make long trips to Norway via Newcastle and ferry. The Yaris copes well enough with the journey, but it now feels short of space; it's not big enough to cope with larger groups of visitors, including grandchildren, car seats, luggage etc from the local airport.
